Oral Changes in Later Life


As we age, oral health can have a significant impact on overall health. This is why it is so important to look after the teeth, gums and mouth and keep our dental health in the best possible shape. Some myths and misconceptions about teeth and older age that should be dispelled:

  • Teeth naturally darken with age – This is true to some extent but limiting the intake of caffeine, alcohol and tobacco products combined with proper brushing can help prevent this happening.
  • Gum disease is a certainty – Although gum disease is more prevalent in older adults, following a good dental health regimen can largely avoid this becoming an issue.
  • Older people get dry mouth – Dry mouth happens to people of all ages and, once diagnosed, is readily treatable by a dentist.
  • Advancing years will undoubtedly lead to change but it is possible to maintain optimal oral health if you follow the basic rules of brushing and flossing correctly — and having your teeth and gums cleaned by your dentist at regular intervals.
